Notes

First edition. Inscribed by the author in vol. 1 on the front free binder's blank, "Miss Courthope, with the author's affectionate regards". Samuel Hill was a prolific travel writer, who, having made a trip around the world in the 1850s, published several popular books of his travels. This edition is uncommon in the original binding, with six copies traced at auction.
